Tisha Campbell and her sons Xen,20, and Ezekiel,12, attended the HollyRod 2023 DesignCare Gala at The Beehive on July 15, 2023 in Los Angeles, California.


The event was hosted by Tisha’s friends, Holly Robinson Peete and Rodney Peete, and it featured a charitable fashion show and auction that raised funds for autism and Parkinson’s disease.

Tisha expressed her heartfelt appreciation for the gala on Instagram, calling it an “amazing #hollyrod night!”

She wrote, “My amazing kind and loving friends @hollyrpeete and @rodneypeete9 hosted #designcare a charitable fashion show and auction that benefits #autism and #parkinsonsdisease. It also honors people who have invested their time to amazing philanthropy work some of which were my favorite powercouple @nicoleariparker and @boriskodjoe. I’m blessed to surround myself around people who truly care about others. ”

The evening held special significance for Tisha Campbell, as her son Xen was diagnosed with autism when he was just 18 months old. Now, at 20 years old, Xen is thriving in college, defying all odds. In 2020, Campbell proudly announced that her son had been accepted into the college he had dreamt of attending since he was eight years old.

“…Today, I cried happy tears for two hours straight in traffic. Today my son, Xen, got into the college he’s talked about since he was eight years old. He didn’t wait for anyone to help him. He didn’t wait for us to help him and when someone said he’d never get in — He applied anyway. It’s it’s so apropos because that’s how he has lived his life regardless of the odds.”

She continued, “My baby wants to be an animal conservationist and he will be. He has stayed on the deans list and is holding down two jobs because he wants to be independent of a silver spoon He cares less about labels. Xen, mommy’s goal was to make you as independent of me as possible. I wanted you to be able to survive greatly without me. I never knew you would surpass my hopes for your future. You are amazing man. Mommy loves you with all my heart and soul. You and your brother are my everything.”

In December 2020, Tisha Campbell and her ex-husband, Duane Martin, finalized their divorce. Despite this, they continue to co-parent their amazing children, Xen and Ezekiel.
